Fans of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo will fall in love with Jenna “Jinx” Ballou, a gritty, tough-as-nails bounty hunter who has been outed as transgender by the press and ostracized by the local bail bond industry.

When teenage murder suspect Holly Schwartz jumps bail, Jinx Ballou is hired by a desperate bail bond agent to return the young fugitive to custody.

But the trail’s gone cold. One veteran bounty hunter has already given up the chase. And Jinx only has five days to capture her fugitive and claim her bounty.

Jinx’s leads point in different directions. The police suspect someone’s helping Holly escape justice. Holly’s family believes she’s the latest victim in a string of kidnappings by a sadistic human trafficker.

As Jinx closes in on her fugitive, the situation takes a deadly turn. The body count rises, forcing Jinx to push her body, her skills, and her luck to the limit—not only to claim the bounty, but just to survive.

Following on the success of her gritty Shea Stevens thriller series, author Dharma Kelleher breaks new ground as one of the top authors in transgender crime fiction with her new novel Chaser, the first in her Jinx Ballou series.
